Men, want to sit in front of your TV for four days straight and watch the NCAA Tournament in peace? Then get a vasectomy!
A urology clinic in Ohio, the Cleveland Clinic, says it’s a trend for men to schedule their vasectomies during March Madness so they can watch and recover without complaint from the wives.
“According to the esteemed medical center, men are scheduling vasectomies so they can recover — it’s usually just a day or so of resting and ice packs — in front of the television, watching March Madness.”
“ ‘I’m doing them every 15 minutes tomorrow with no holes. It usually won’t be that full,” Dr. J. Stephen Jones, chairman of the department of regional urology at Cleveland Clinic, said Thursday. He said he noticed a couple years ago that vasectomies increased up to 50% during the NCAA basketball tournament.”
“He added that about half the patients he sees say they’ve timed their procedures to college basketball.”
Urologists outside of Ohio don’t think there is a trend.
“Yet a urology practice in Richmond, Va., grabbed www.vasectomymadness.com and is promoting the ability to “spend three days on the couch watching hoops with your wife’s approval.” Other urologists in Springfield, Ore.; Austin, Texas, and Longview, Wash., are among those are seizing the marketing opportunity.”

So is this a trend or a wanna-be trend? Do you know any men scheduling vasectomies around March Madness games? Would this help convince your man to get his done?
